Great location with easy access to the beach with sun chairs provided (old and not very nice). The staff is very friendly. Stayed in a recently decorated room with a amazing view. However, for the cost the standard isn't very good. Rooms are clean but quite cheap looking. Bathrooms have not been maintained very well and very out dated. Overall...

We had a great stay at this Ipanema Beach hotel. Its located between Postos (lifeguard stations) 9 and 10 which offered the best people-watching and street food in Rio. The rooms were large with beautiful hardwood floors and ocean views. They had Lanvin products in the bathroom which was a fabulous surprise! There is a pretty pool/sun room area with...

We stayed for a few days around NYE and had another wonderful stay. Not much to add except that they gave us a nice upgrade to a corner room - beautiful views. The charge for a very late check-out (8PM) was also very reasonable. When they tell you the charge don't think it's in US$ - it's in BR$. I...

Truly amazing location with beach facilities you can use which is a massive plus. The refurb worked and the rooms are really pleasant. Breakfast perfectly functional and good, the bar upstairs is pleasant with great views. Then there are a few buts. the pool is tiny and turns into human soup in busy times, the lifts are incredibly unreliable, and...

The hotel is now managed by the Accor group who seem to have revitalized it. The rooftop pool and bar are really nice and have an amazing view. They also have a gym on top of the bar where you can work out with a view. Some of the rooms (at least the ones I have seen) have been updated...

The hotel is very well located in the heart of Ipanema, one of the best places in Rio. Not everything is perfect, sometimes I think some update is needed. Restaurant inside the hotel is fancy but with regular food. Overall, good place to stay if you are willing to pay what they charge.

Wonderful hotel in front of Ipanema beach: amazing hall, pool on the rooftop, great continental breakfast. Rooms are huge, clean with an amazing view on the sea: maybe fornitures a bit old to be in a 5 star hotel. The hotel is placed in a safe area in front of “posto 9” and you have free access on the beach...
